    Allrounder Remodeling Owner visits Washington DC for Small Business Summit

    I had the opportunity to attend the 2017 U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Summit in beautiful Washington D.C.   It was a great honor to be selected to attend. It was a short visit but very inspirational, not only that I was in our nation’s capital city but the wonderful speakers I heard and to visit with Senator Klobuchar, Senator Franken and Congressman Lewis.

    Standing on the roof of the US Chamber of Commerce, with the White House and Washington Monument in the background.

    One of Monday’s speakers was Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix.  His message was to not give up on thinking up new ideas for the next new thing might be the one that is your best idea ever. If it wasn’t for a daily drive to work for Marc Randolph and his business partner, Reed Hastings, founders Netflix, we may still be going to the video store to pick up videos. They kept thinking of new ideas each day or so to relay back to each other on the ride to a job that they once had together before Netflix. Marc spoke of not all the ideas were worth going forward with and some of them where duds.

                                                                                          Visiting the War Memorials on September 11th was a surreal experience

    On Tuesday I had the opportunity to listen to Mike Katz Sr. VP of T-Mobile. The perspective I learned from him was, listen to your customers and what they are dreaming of and try to make them come true. On this day the group I was with also was able to visit with Senator Klobuchar and Senator Franken.  It was a huge honor to be able to chat with our Senators in a small setting.

                                                                          Our group of local business leaders was honored to meet with Senator Franken

    Before our flight on Wednesday we had a short visit with Congressman Lewis. We also took the White House tour.

                                    The White House is filled with inspirational historical architecture

    Although the visits were brief, I was reminded about how important it is to write your Senators and Congressmen regarding issues that are important to you. They are working for us the best that they can.

                                                        Ok, I know it’s cheesy, but I couldn’t help myself!

    I hope to visit Washington D.C. again and do even more sightseeing.  If you ever get a chance to visit do not miss the National Mall and the War Monuments. I was very touched by all of them. It is very surreal to see and reflect on what they all mean.

    Fire Prevention in your Home: Plan 2 Ways Out!

    Plan Two ways out of your home in case of a fire

    In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.

    That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages:

    • FPW 2017 Escape Plan Grid
    • Draw a map of your home by using our grid in English (PDF) or Spanish (PDF) with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.
    • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
    • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
    • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
    • Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
    • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

    If you have questions, please visit www.NFPA.org, or talk with your friends at your local fire department.

    A new Kitchen for Christmas? Maybe next year!

    It’s that time of year when we get folks calling and asking us to complete a kitchen remodel for them before their family arrives for the holidays.

    Let’s presume a targeted completion date of December 15th.  This gives you a little over a week to clean up, decorate, and stock the liquor cabinet for your Christmas party.

    Most kitchen projects take about 6-8 weeks of construction time.  This means that we need to get started on construction no later than October 15th.

    Kitchen has been insulated and awaits city inspection.

    Backing up further, we have the design process.  After meeting with our kitchen designer for the first time, it typically takes a little back and forth with revisions and perfections to get the design just how you like it.  Then we need to bring in the construction team (plumber, electrician, carpenters, drywallers, etc.) to review the plans at your home, iron out details, and submit bids.  After that, we submit everything to the city for permits.  This process can take another 4-8 weeks, which puts us at August 15th.  Oops, that was 2 weeks ago!

    Kitchen plan shown during the design revision process

    Our kitchen remodeling projects are successful because of the high level of thought and planning that goes into them long before the old cabinets start getting torn out.  As our clients can attest, this careful planning and attention to detail ahead of the project results in a finished kitchen that is completed on time, on budget, and will serve your needs beautifully for many years.

    If you’d like to get started on your St. Patricks Day kitchen, please give Ruth a call at 651-497-7715.

    Scholarships for Trade Careers

    If you follow us on social media, you’ve probably noticed a lot of posts lately regarding the benefits of working in the skilled building trades.  These include:  a schooling cycle that is less expensive and shorter than a 4-year degree, great pay, better job security than almost any other career, wide availability of jobs, and the personal satisfaction of working with your hands.

    We’re noticing that as the current skilled workforce reaches retirement age, there are very few young people waiting in the wings to take their place.  This is puzzling to us, because who wouldn’t want to make sawdust for a living?

    To generate interest and support in this great career path, we’ve decided to put our money where our mouths are.  Announcing the Allrounder Remodeling Scholarship program.  This scholarship is available through the IGH BEST Foundation.  It will be awarded to a Simley senior who plans to attend a vocational, technical or community college or apprenticeship program with the intention of learning a skilled trade related to home building or remodeling.  The scholarship will be awarded to a student who has demonstrated strong academic achievement and displayed good character and citizenship.

    Information packets and applications will be available at Simley in early February.  Applications are due in early March.  We look forward to meeting the winner in May when the scholarship winners are announced!
